Pompton Plains, NJ — October 2, 2019 — Zaxcom today announced the launch of the MRX214 to its Digital Recording Wireless line. With increased sound challenges in studio and on the street, the hot swappable MRX214 module receiver is designed to meet those demands while introducing new extended range and ultra low power consumption.

MRX214 is a module style receiver compatible with the Nova mixer / recorder, RX-12 and RX-12R. The UHF diversity receiver utilizes the High Q tunable tracking front end filter within it’s host device to combat interference and extend range. The module is compatible with any Zaxcom digital recording wireless transmitter and with all current Zaxcom modulations (Mono, Stereo, XR and ZHD96).

A new fourth generation receiver to follow up the QRX212, the new MRX214 sets a new standard for RF performance. The ultra-low noise floor (-135 dB) RF design will provide ultra-long range. The MRX is almost impossible to overload. Close distance transmitters have virtually no effect on the reception of distant transmitters. The RF performance exceeds the previous generation of Zaxcom receivers by 5 dB while enhancing the rejection of interfering signals from things like walkie talkies, cell phones and HD Television transmission by 10 dB.

The MRX214 receives a 100% digital signal that is fully encrypted resulting in audio quality far superior to any analog system.

Whether the module is used with a Nova mixer / recorder, RX-12 or RX-12R, a full color LCD on the host unit lets users easily navigate the menu. The built-in frequency scanner and Auto-Pick software eliminates the guess work and can coordinate and choose the best frequencies with a push of a button. If used in the Nova mixer / recorder, the user can re-frequency the transmitters to match the MRX214 with a touch of a button via ZaxNet™.

The MRX214 is the most power efficient digital wireless receiver on the market – the module draws 160 mA @ 13 VDC (80 mA per receiver). The MRX214 is shipping now with a MSRP of $1,850.
